The 50th anniversary of Ocean Pines is being hailed as a milestone. But before its residents and guests can blow out the anniversary candles and release the gold confetti, members of the 50th Anniversary Committee, with the assistance of the association, are announcing a logo contest. They are encouraging Ocean Pines residents to create a logo that would best commemorate the golden anniversary.
“The 50th Anniversary Committee thought this would be a fantastic way to get the residents involved in kicking off the celebration,” said Jennifer Cropper-Rines, chairperson of the 50th Anniversary Committee.
Ideally, the logo would incorporate the community’s rich history and awe-inspiring views, while giving a nod to recent developments and its promising future.
Today Ocean Pines is a premier residential community nestled on Maryland’s Eastern Shore in northern Worcester County. It features more than nine miles of waterfront property on 3,000 acres of wooded areas, and amenities throughout the community, including a beachfront property located five miles in Ocean City and on the Atlantic Ocean.
The finalized logo will be used on a wide range of applications during the marketing of the Ocean Pines 50th Anniversary, including but not limited to exterior signs, clothing, flags, banners and the association’s website. The winning entry becomes exclusive property of the Ocean Pines Association for its unlimited use. The winner has to be willing to work with the committee in the event the design requires minor revisions.
Entry deadline is Friday, May 19, 2017. The winner will be notified and presented to the public by Monday, June 19, 2017. The winning artwork will be announced to local media; in the weekly email blast; the quarterly newsletter The Ocean Pines Report, and on the Real Ocean Pines Forum. The entries will be judged by selected members of the 50th Anniversary Committee. The talented winner will walk away with a $100 gift certificate to The Cove at Mumford’s in Ocean Pines and some Ocean Pines ‘swag.’ He/she will be featured at a number of the anniversary events in 2018.
All entrants must be at least 15 years of age, and must include their name, address, and contact phone number.
